Women on the Summit / Mujeres en la Cumbre
“Women on the Summit” is about five women who formed a community association on the outskirts of Bogota, Colombia. Luz Marina, Yadith, Berenice, Angelica and Aunt Raquel set out to improve the local quality of life, guided by the wisdom that “helping a woman is helping a family”. In the process, they transform not only their community, but also their own lives.
